Carolina Panthers beat New York Giants 33-31 in nail-biter

Carolina Panthers beat New York Giants 33-31 in nail-biter

The New York Giants lost a heartbreaker to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, 33-31, on a 63-yard field goal by Graham Gano with 0:06 seconds left. Latimer has the longest passing play of the season for the G-Men when he hauled 37-yard yard pass against the Cowboys.

"If that was the issue, it would be a problem", Smith said with a laugh.

As for his new Panthers teammates, they're more concerned with what he'll do after the national anthem.

Reid, who signed a one-year contract with the Panthers last week, claimed at the beginning of the offseason that he wasn't receiving interest from teams due to his decision to kneel during the national anthem.

Cam Newton said the Panthers "got a steal" when they signed the 26-year-old Reid.

With a large American flag in the middle of the field, Reid went to his right knee as the "The Star-Spangled Banner" was sung by Marc Martel.

"I'm going to stand by him and none of that will be a distraction as far as us winning football games", Newton said.

The Giants have gotten killed on zone reads all year, and now the face arguably the best quarterback at running the zone read. He's not - we know Eli's not running it.

VERNON'S BACK: The Giants are optimistic that outside linebacker Olivier Vernon will see his first action of the season after a strong week of practice. But soon the questions to Giants head coach Pat Shurmur turned to wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who made some controversial comments about his coaches and teammates in a recent interview which were not very flattering.

A few plays later, the Panthers scored a touchdown, bringing their lead to 27-16 with just 11:23 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Though Newton has been sacked six times, his 28 rush attempts for 4.9 yards per offset that, and No. 1 backfield performer Christian McCaffrey has ben solid too.
